10 Ferraris You Should Own if You Want to Be a Serious Ferrari Collector

If money were no object, you could go space-adjacent with Jeff Bezos and crew. Alternatively, you could buy what some experts consider the top 10 Ferrari models ever made. The Bezos ride took about 10 minutes. The collection, on the other hand, could bring you decades of enjoyment.

A brief history of Ferrari

Since its beginning, Ferrari has been synonymous with elegance and beauty. The inaugural vehicle for the brand was the 125S that rolled out of the factory in 1947. It set the tone for Enzo Ferrari’s vision for the vehicles that would display his name for years to come. By the 1950s, Ferrari considered the brand a success.

The 1960s became the time of sponsors and the growth of its racing division. However, the 1980s became difficult for the manufacturer. A prior agreement with Fiat came back to haunt the automaker. Still, by the new millennium, the company was back on top, with its sporting division setting the tone.

Now, you will be hard-pressed to find anyone worldwide who does not know the name or covets one of the brand’s beauties.

When there is so much demand, someone will come along and rank the models. As documented by TopSpeed, any serious collector would give an arm or a leg for these 10 spectacular models.

The first model is the Ferrari LaFerrari, which we will discuss in detail later. After the number one spot, there is the Ferrari 365 GTB/4. Its rarity is part of its appeal, as the manufacturer built only 1,406 models of this 4.4-liter V12 engine car with a top speed of 174 mph. Third, the Ferrari Dino 246 is the type of car you can find in an old barn or buried in a backyard and boasts a 2.4-liter V6 engine. This is different from the fourth car in the collection, the Ferrari F40, which is equipped with a 2.9L V8 engine.

As fifth, the Ferrari 125 S has the distinction of being the most famous of the vehicles. Since only two models exist, you may have to dig deep in your pocket to add one to the collection. Meanwhile, in sixth place is the Ferrari Testarossa with its 5.0-liter flat-six engine and Miami Vice fame.

Next up, there is the Ferrari Enzo, which is a little more angular than other models. However, who needs curves when you have a maximum output of 660 hp? In eighth place is the Ferrari 308 GTS, which made Tom Selleck look great in Magnum P.I. At number nine, there is the Ferrari F355, which is actually one of the less expensive models on the list.

Last but certainly not least, the experts name the Ferrari 250 GTO. If you have about $70 million, you might be able to get one of the 39 models that rolled out of the manufacturer’s garage.

The Ferrari LaFerrari is the ultimate Ferrari

What makes the Ferrari LaFerrari the ultimate favorite? At the cost of a little over $1 million when it first came out, and now going for between $3 million and $6 million, it is certainly not the most expensive model. However, it is a hypercar you’ll want to hold onto, as it will be the best 2.4 seconds you ever spent waiting to get from 0 to 60 mph. Then again, at a top speed of 217 mph, you may have difficulty finding a road to drive it on.
